Be Like Barack

not like this guy
yes like this guy

When it comes to climate change, John Key is out of step. He's bowing his head to Rodney Hide and stalling on crucial emissions legislation. But this is no time for waiting around!

The world is watching. On Tuesday 18 November, Barack Obama made a powerful statement that was heard around the globe: "Now is the time to confront this challenge once and for all. Delay is no longer an option. Denial is no longer an acceptable response. The stakes are too high. The consequences, too serious."

Delay? Denial? He's talking about Rodney!

It's time for the 96% of us who didn't vote for Rodney to speak up. We still have time to make things right - and in his first weeks in the job, we know John Key wiill be listening.

So give yourself a voice, and tell John Key not to be a Rodney - tell him to be like Barack.

Excellent work! I've gone for sending an email to the PM rather than a letter as I'm based overseas. Hopefully NZ can take a lead on the issue of climate change rather than dragging its heels.

Are you serious? Do you really think Barack Obama would ask congress to pass something so draconian as New Zealand's proposed ETS scheme?

You aren't even on this planet my friend.

It doesn't matter what the problem is, the proposed solution is nuts. Focus on the real issue here.

Blair: you're missing the point. Barack said that denial is no longer an option, and neither is delay. That's the key message here and it is something worth pointing out to our new PM.
